  1. External Lens for Video Conference

    I'd like to have the ability to use an outside the computer camera, such as a Nikon, as the lens for a Skype video conference. That would give me the ability to have a wider and a more flexible video eye of me as the caller.

  3. Please create an option for deleting the search history in skype for names searched to not pop-up for privacy issues, thank you.

    This option will let our private searched or contacted person be hidden and not to be found out just by looking into the search results even after the chat and call history is deleted.

  9. Permanently removing all aspects of unwanted contacts

    Despite blocking someone, or removing them from the view list, many would benefit from an optional feature allowing you to remove a contact from all areas of the platform. Currently when you completely remove someone they still appear when you click in the search bar under the people list. Being able to make it as if your account had never associated with another due to personal reasons would be greatly appreciated.

  10. Please Add Spotify or other music compatibility

    I am currently considering skype as a way to host online DND sessions, however I cannot find a good way to share music with others on the call, which is essential for me.The only way i found was to share my screen and computer sound, but that would also reveal my notes since you cannot hide a shared screen(another issue).

  15. Conference call to a landline for elderly people in corona-time

    Is it possible to restore the function of calling to a landline during conference calls? My father is currently in a nursing home and my mother, brother, sister and I would like to have a conference call because my father sometimes has too little for one day on his one single person call. Because my mother is already elderly and panic about the corona virus, she does not want us to use a shared telephone.

  16. Japanese Mobile number as caller id

    Is there any way to add Japanese mobile number as caller id in skype ? If not, why it is restricted ? I have seen, many other countries are listed on that list of 'Add Caller Id' section.
